If you can't handle the wait any longer for the next season of Game of Thrones, never fear, you can play this new video game and become a character in the Seven Kingdoms yourself. The game is an episodic graphic adventure based on the books and TV series,  and even has Ty Corey Franck, the personal assistant of the books' author George R. R. Martin, on board for accuracy.

The game will be released in six episodes, with the first one, entitled 'Iron From Ice' released this week. In the game you won't actually get to play one of the characters, but a fictional family from the north called the Forresters. They will control the Ironwood forest in the north-east of Westeros, with a total of five members of the House being playable characters in the game. You can then control the various members of the family scattered throughout Westeros.

Sounds deadly in fairness! Now, wonder if we can stop the Red Wedding from taking place...

 The game is available on Microsoft Windows, OS X, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One.
